Galveston Hop Growing advice needed!
Looking to plant a couple of rhizomes this year.

I live on the Gulf Coast (Galveston) and was wondering if anyone might have any ideas on what strains I could get to grow best.

My yard has around 4 or 5 hours of direct sunlight a day, I figure. Maybe more.

It will obviously be super humid, so with that in mind, shoot!

Not being super serious about it, I would just like to have enough for a batch of beer or two at the end of the year.

Personally I have no experience but I am interested to find out. I live in Houston. Might want to add the 3-4 month out of the year with 100+ degree weather. I bet these will need tons of watering.

"Not adapted to southern Idaho" is code for won't do well in heat. feel free to click yea olde "proust" button if you find it useful.
